I ate here last week, and was greatly impressed. Although it cost a bit more than some of the other Italian resturants, I imediatly knew where that money went. The food was amazing (the chicken was fresh, something you will never find in a chain), and the wine list was impressive. Our server, Mindy was very friendly, and the bartender had an extensive knowledge of the wine list. (Oh and they actually served the wine in a real glass, not the 9oz saftey glass you get at some wine bars!) I sat on the "adult side" as our server called it, which was a slightly more formal, adult-only half of the resturant. They also had a more family-friendly side, for those with kids. At the end of our meal I was surprised that the owner of the resturant came out to personally thank us for comming out. Now thats something you simply dont see anymore. All-in-all a great experiance, and a new place to add to my "favorites" list.
Well being Italian in Oklahoma has it's let downs (no good Italian Restaurants), then a friend of mine told me about Papa Dio's.First of all I could not find it, then when I did it looked like there was no seats because the parking lot was full. I had my wife go in to see how long the wait was and they said we have more seats than parking spots so we can seat you right now. When we went in it was like going back home to the neighborhood hole in the wall joint. They had everything I missed, eggplant parmigiana, clam sauce, they even had real Cannoli. Well now my life in Oklahoma is complete, it's now the best place in the world to live and I can even get real Italian food at Papa Dio's. Thanks John that's the best recommendation I ever got!
We have been to a few BBQ places and I thought I had a grasp of what BBQ was supposed to taste like around here.. Then we seen the rib shack on yellow pages. This is the best BBQ place we have been to! The ribs have so much flavor without the BBQ sauce and the wings also have the best taste. The fries are perfect and taste amazing and the hot links are mind blowing. This place has one thing thatothers don't. Flavor! The BBQ sauce is not as good as head countries BBQ sauce but that is the only reason why I gave this place 4 out of 5 stars.
